11 Disability versus Earnings Relative earnings of permanent partial disability claimants as a proportion of earnings of comparison workers in five states What this graph does not tell you is that disability claims increase during periods of high unemployment, i.e. poor business conditions. In other words, disability and workers compensation may be serving as a substitutes or supplements to unemployment insurance.

17 Does God Play With Fuzzy Dice? A stochastic game is a dynamic game played by one or more players with probabilistic transitions, such that at each stage the probability distribution for that new random state depends on the previous state and the actions chosen by the players Representation of a finite-state machine (example): an FSM that determines whether a binary number has an odd or even number of 0 s. FSM can be non-deterministic (i.e. stochastic). Also state machines can be infinite (i.e. continuous) What if certain parameters (e.g. transition states) are fuzzy, time-varying, etc.? Probabilistic parameters of a Hidden Markov model (example of the simplest dynamic Bayesian framework): x states, y possible observations; a state transition probabilities, b output probabilities Model underlying the Kalman filter. Squares represent matrices. Ellipses represent multivariate normal distributions (with the mean and covariance matrix enclosed). Unenclosed values are vectors. In the simple case, the various matrices are constant with time, and thus the subscripts are dropped, but the Kalman filter allows any of them to change each time step 0 17 Copyright 2012 Risk Economics, Inc.
18 Bayesian Graphical Models A Bayesian network is a probabilistic graphical model that represents a set of random variables and their conditional dependencies d via a directed d acyclic graph (DAG). Bayesian networks that model sequences of variables are called dynamic Bayesian networks. Generalized Bayesian networks that can represent and solve decision problems under uncertainty by combining probabilistic inference and utility maximization are called decision networks, relevance diagrams,, or influence diagrams. Efficienti algorithms exist that perform inference and learning in Bayesian networks. A Markov random field ( MRF ), Markov network or undirected graphical model: a graphical model in which a set of Markov random variables are described by an undirected graph, and is similar to a Bayesian network in its representation of dependencies. An MRF can represent certain dependencies that a Bayesian network cannot (such as cyclic dependencies), but cannot represent certain dependencies that a Bayesian network can (e.g. induced dependencies). The classic MRF is the Ising model a statistical model of ferromagnetism A log-linear model is a Markov random field with feature functions f k such that the full-joint distribution can be written as shown with partition function z, and where X is the set of possible assignments of values to all the network's random variables 18 Copyright 2012 Risk Economics, Inc.
